GET STARTED ON A GREAT CAREER.


Learn the basics in computer repair, and open the door to endless career opportunities.

The A+ Computer certificate program is the first step into a career in computer repair, computer networking, and computer system engineering.

This 19-credit-hour program can be completed in as little as two semesters. The program prepares students to become computer hardware technicians and features courses in AC/DC circuits, electronics, computers servicing and troubleshooting. Plus, this program is eligible for the S.C. Wins Scholarship, which can pay up to $65 per credit hour.

Demand for information technology (IT) workers is high and should continue to grow as firms invest in newer, faster technology and mobile networks. The S.C. annual mean wage is $47,810 for computer repairers, according to 2020 reports from U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Pay can increase substantially with time and experience.
